Moms-to-be love this moisturizing balm for keeping belly itch at bay and preventing stretch marks. This hypoallergenic balm is made of blend of organic butters and oil to keep skin soft. It is certified organic and free of harmful chemicals so it’s safe for mom and baby. Caveat: the herbal aroma doesn’t pass the smell test for some sensitive sniffers.

  • Used this product all throughout pregnancy. No stretch marks post delivery. Not sure if that was due to this product or lucky genetics but kept my belly moisturized! Apr 21, 2019

  • I love this belly balm. It is much easier to apply and get out of the tub than other belly balms I have tried. It is oily, but comes off hands easily when you wash with soap and water. Feb 20, 2019

    I'm not really sure if it helped or not. It tended to leave my skin tacky after application as well. It was a gift so I don't regret it, just wouldn't recommend it if asked Jan 11, 2019

  • I like all of the ingredients of this belly balm and even though the scent is strong I do enjoy it. My only complaint is that it is a little greasy and needs to dry before you can get dressed. Dec 27, 2018

    This is really soothing and moisturizing for pregnancy, but the smell is a little annoying. I preferred to use plain coconut oil or the Burt’s Bees belly oil. Jul 07, 2018

  • I used this religiously while pregnant at night and loved it. I had zero stretch marks after my pregnancy. It is a little greasy, but I just wore an old shirt to bed and it worked great. Apr 13, 2018

  • This really soothes my belly in the last month or so. The smell was so-so but it did moisturize well. I already had stretch marks formed so it didn’t help in that aspect. Feb 18, 2018

  • The smell was terrible. I paid what I felt like was way to much for this and then couldnt even use it. Again the smell was just awful. The consistecy was ok. Nov 29, 2017

  • I've been using this since I found out I was pregnant, and I love it. Nov 14, 2017

  • I thought this worked great, but my husband was not a fan of the smell. If you don't mind essential oils, then it won't bother you. It is slightly more oily than other belly balms. Nov 02, 2017

  • Super moisturizing and kept stretch marks at bay! However it has the consistency of Vaseline, and it’s not easy to use once baby arrives and you have a baby on you constantly! Oct 25, 2017

  • I used this a lot while pregnant. It didn't really do anything, so I probably wouldn't buy it again for this pregnancy. Jul 16, 2017

  • I wanted to like this but unfortunately I developed PUPPPs. I know it was from this because I used it on/off during my pregnancy & concluded this was the cause. On the plus, it smells good & soothing Jul 05, 2017

  • Left me feeling dry. I ended up with really bad dry skin the next morning after I applied this. Jun 28, 2017

  • It was okay, a little sticky but moisturizing. Didn't do anything for my stretch marks. Apr 06, 2017

  • I swear by this ointment! No stretch marks and I am 8 months pregnant! Helps with itching and absorbs quickly. Smell is OK. Feb 22, 2017

    This was very greasy. I felt it left a residue on my skin. I honestly didn't use it long enough to see if it helped moisturize. Dec 07, 2016

  • Was given this as a gift. Not sure if it works as I am not prone to stretch marks to begin with. Aug 16, 2016

  • Smells good but gave me a rash and my belly started to itch after a few days of using this. Feb 19, 2016

  • i liked burts bees better; didn't like smell of this one Jul 14, 2015

  • Has an earthy smell but works great. Use on belly and thighs. Great moisturizer. Love that it's made from organic ingredients and no chemicals. Jul 11, 2015

  • The smell is awful. I can't use it without getting sick. Jun 02, 2015

  • Love thats its all natural May 22, 2015

  • The smell is slightly strange but it is a great belly balm for use during and after pregnancy. Good for itchy bellies or stretch mark prevention. Highly recommend. Feb 24, 2015

  • I didn't get any stretch marks! Nov 02, 2014

  • Love this companies products! Oct 31, 2014

    I subscribe to the Honest Company bundle, and requested this during my pregnancy. It is a little bit greasy but definitely helped smooth out those stretch marks! I prefer the Burt's Bees one. Aug 19, 2014

  • So far it's helped the growing, itchy tummy Jul 29, 2014

  • Love the smell and love knowing that it's safe for me and baby Jul 29, 2014

    • Laura B.

    This was one of the only products that relieved the itching on my belly and back, and soothed my chafed thighs. Herbal Smell may be an acquired taste for some, but I liked it Jul 29, 2014
